4:25.

there followed him great crowds from Galilee Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judæa, and from beyond Jordan.

Now seeing the crowds he went up into the mountain and when he had taken his seat, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them : Blessed are the poor in spirit !

For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn !

For they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek!

For they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after

righteousness.
For they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful !

For they will obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart !

For they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers !

For they will be called the children of God
Blessed are those who are persecuted

For righteousness' sake
For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are you, when men shall revile you,

Shall persecute you,

1

5:11.

Shall
say

all kinds of evil
Against you falsely,
For my.sake.
Rejoice!

Be exceedingly glad !
For great is your reward in heaven.

For so did they persecute the prophets,
Who were before

you. You are the salt of the earth.

But if the salt has become saltless,
With what shall it be salted ?
It is then good for nothing
But to be thrown out,

And to be trodden under foot of men.
You are the light of the world.

A city set on a hill cannot be hid.
Nor do men light a lamp,
And put it under the bushel,
But on the stand,
And it gives light to all who are in the

house.
Let your light so shine before men

That they may see your good works,

And glorify your Father who is in Heaven. Do not think I have come to destroy the law, Or the prophets. I have not come to destroy

5:17

But to fulfil.

For to tell you the truth,
Till heaven and earth pass
Not the dot of an 'i,' nor the cross of a 't;'
Will ever disappear from the law

Till all is done.
So whoever shall break
One of these least commandments
And shall teach men to do so,
Will be called least
In the Kingdom of Heaven.
But whoever shall do and teach them
Will be called great
In the Kingdom of Heaven.

For I tell you,
Except your religion
Shall be better than that
Of the Scribes and Pharisees

You will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. You have heard it was said to them of old time :

Thou shalt not kill,
And whoever shall kill,

Shall be in danger of being brought to trial.
But I tell you :
Whoever is angry with his brother

Will be in danger of being brought to trial. Whoever shall say to his brother, You fool !

Will be in danger of the council.

5 : 22.

Whoever shall say: You scoundrel !

Will be in danger of the gehenna of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar, And there remember

your

brother
Has anything against you,
Leave your gift there before the altar

And go away
First be reconciled to your brother,

And then come and offer
Agree with your adversary quickly,

While you are on the road with him,
Lest the adversary deliver you to the judge,
The judge deliver you to the officer,
And you be thrown into prison.
To tell you the truth :
You will never come out of there,
Till you have paid the last cent.

your gift.

You have heard it was said :

Thou shalt not commit adultery.
But I tell you :

Whoever looks on a woman
To lust after her

Has committed adultery with her already
In his heart.

If your right eye is a hindrance to you,

Pick it out.
Throw it from you.

5:29.

For it is good for you,

That one of your members should perish
And not your whole body
Be thrown into gehenna.

If your right hand is a hindrance to you

Cut it off,

Throw it from you.
For it is good for you,

That one of your members should perish
And not your whole body
Go into gehenna.

It was said also :

Whoever shall put away his wife,

Let him give her a writing of divorce.
But I tell you:

Whoever puts away his wife,
Except because of fornication,

Makes her an adulteress.
Whoever shall marry her
Who is divorced

Commits adultery.

Again you have heard it was said to them of old time:

Thou shalt not break an oath,
But shalt keep your oaths to the Lord.
